Brightspot CMS User Guide

References widget

Brightspot lists assets referring to the current asset in the References widget. Among other use cases, the References widget is especially helpful when an asset needs to be archived, as editors can refer to the widget and update the references, thereby preventing broken links from appearing on their site.

In the image above, the asset has 16 references. Clicking a reference navigates you to the referencing asset. To view a list of all 16 references, click View All 16 References.

To view a list of assets referring to the current asset:

  1. Search for and open an asset.
  2. In the References widget, view the assets that reference the current asset. The 10 most recent references are listed.
  3. If the asset has more than 10 references, click View All [Number] References. This opens a search panel from which you can further query and filter for all referencing assets. For details, see the topics under Brightspot search.
